OK, I’m over winter and thinking about warmer weather. (I know I shouldn’t complain since I live on the West Coast, but these gloomy, cloudy days are getting to me.)
Anyhow, this is all to say that today I’m reviewing something that is better suited for spring: the Everlane Italian GoWeave Easy Pant. What is GoWeave, you ask? It’s a magical fabric that Everlane says doesn’t wrinkle, keeps its shape, and regulates your temperature. Everlane has two types of GoWeave: Italian and Japanese. The Italian GoWeave is made out of wool yarn that’s spun in Italy, of course. The Japanese GoWeave fabric (used for this dress) is made from triacetate, a synthetic fabric which contains cotton or tree pulp cellulose. It has a silky drape and is cooling.
As its name suggests, the Italian GoWeave Easy Pant are made from the wool variety. It comes three colors: black, navy, and an olive green color called “surplus.” Made in an ethical factory in Suzhou, China, it retails for $88. I like the idea of it: casual two-pocket pants with an elastic waist, but made with such nice fabric that you can get away with wearing it to the office. Casual and comfortable, yet polished, you say? Sign me up, please.
Here’s how it looks on the model.
And here’s how it looks on me.
OK, I know I don’t look like a model, but out of all the Everlane items I’ve tried on, these pants are the farthest away from how they appear on the model. Look how big they are on me — and this is after I went one size down from my usual size. They’re oddly proportioned; the crotch hangs way low. The thigh area is quite generous (and I am not in possession of skinny thighs). Perhaps this has to do with my height. I’m 5′ 3″ and the model is 5’10” — we are both wearing the size 2.
Alright, now from the back. Model:
Dear reader, as you might have deduced, I did not buy them.
I have to say: the fabric’s quite nice. It’s lightweight and has a bit of a sheen. Even though the pants are made out of wool, I didn’t find them itchy. Maybe if you’re tall they might work for you. They do run big though, so I suggest going down a size. Maybe even two?
